#2218608 This team screams for a trade

Posted by RusDRW on 26 October 2011 - 04:39 AM

We have one of the most capable rosters in the whole league that can deliver in each and every game and all we get is clear lack of effort. I'm getting tired of all these after game quotes "We though we were prepared", "We just got beat, 7-1, so to start like that tonight, to me, is lack of preparation," "It was a disappointing effort. The coaching staff didn't do a good enough job; the players didn't do a good enough job."

We've heard such things so many times during the last two/three years. Where are the consequences? I think the real reason is that everyone on the roster feel too safe. They known that no matter how bad they play they'll never be traded. Starting from 4th line plug Miller to "superstar" Zetterberg. When intensity of the game is rather low we often win on a pure skill, when it gets higher like in the last two games we simply give up. To me this is pure lack of effort. If Bertuzzi or Zetterberg don't like to compete in games like this scratch them and call up Nyquist or Tatar.

PS For those saying that it is only two games (there are always a plenty of such guys) I recommend to watch some other teams. No team in this league gives up games so easily.

Doan would be perfect and, thus, won't happen. Another player I would want is Ales Hemsky.

I completely disagree, telling a defensemen to con

[CUTTED нахер]

, Pronger has been pretty successful afterall.

#2210815 Brendan Smith suspended for 5 games

I predict 50 games overall for Perry and 30 for Getzlaf. Just beacause they pley THAT type of hockey. Half of the Bruins roster will be suspended soon and only Cooke will continue to do what he wants...


#2208303 Yet another lawsuit filed against Bert

Posted by RusDRW on 20 September 2011 - 01:21 PM

Same with Savard.


I thinks it is pretty clear to everyone who actually ended Savard career, when it happened and how it happened. I think the actual difference is that Savard was better player and earned a plenty of money himself. That is a bit unfair...

I'll believe Babs...just as long as he's not been working out with Andrei Kostitsyn. ;)


Kostitsyn and Hudler could be lethal together :) what's about something like Kostitsyn-Wolski-Hudler? Could be laziest line in NHL.


#2206248 Best One-Two Punch?

Posted by RusDRW on 05 September 2011 - 01:05 PM

Have to agree with this one. Getzlaf is a beast, Perry has established himself as a force to be reckoned with (despite still being a complete ******), and throw Bobby Ryan on a line with them, when healthy they are the most dangerous scoring line in the league IMO.


this. In addition, Getzlaf is the only player in this league I would trade any current Wing straight up without any hesistation. I would even add a bit trading Zetterberg for Getzlaf. Perry on the other hand is just complementary... Just like Clarke to Gilmore.

his carreer was long over. he was still getiing money that is way more important than the career


#2204503 Drury retires

Posted by RusDRW on 19 August 2011 - 02:04 PM

what a lucky guy... first pumping up his statistics plying with Forsberg then spending one relatively good season with Buffalo and then getting 7 times 5.

This thread is not geniuous enough without that girl named Carman! Where are you, Carman?


#2203333 Bold predictions for the year!

year full of injuries again


#2203053 Carcillo opens his yapper...

Posted by RusDRW on 09 August 2011 - 05:45 PM


Which also makes a lot more sense, as Brunette fills the same kind of "utility offense" role Kopecky does, but has a wicked shot and has been a top-line offensive player for years. Brunette is also excellent with his hands and can fill the net-front spot Kopecky had been playing. I wouldn't be shocked if he has a very good season in Chicago, given the environment surrounding him. He has rarely played with other skilled forwards and skilled defenseman at the same time.




Perry was embarrassed by losing to Dats... one could say that is retribution enough.


Perry was not embarrassed. He won that fight.

I have a problem when someone drops the mitts with datsyuk and no one gets retribution for it.


this

and in this sense

PS Everyf****** Carcillo needs to understand there is no way to escape...

Carcillo is our problem. Not Vancouver's. And we didn't even try to address it. Commodore is laughable. Sometimes it seems team in our division is signing players just to make fun of us.


#2202390 San Jose Sharks

Posted by RusDRW on 04 August 2011 - 01:21 PM

Looks like their team is improving each and every year. I can track back to three years ago when their third line center was Wellwood and they just traded for Boyle. Pavelski was youngser back then. Next year Couture emerged and they signed Malhotra. Still no Cup. Now they have excellent three-centers punch in Thornton, Couture, Pavelski and they just signed big body Handzus. In addition to that they traded for Burns, signed him, and signed White as well. I see then way better than they were last year. Personally, I think there is no way for us to get past them in the play-offs with Helm and Abdelkader as 3rd and 4th line centers. So, the actual question. Does someone see them as champions next year? To be honest, I do. I wouldn't bet a dime if we meet them in the play-offs.
